    At Stan Laurel's Funeral

    I was browsing around Youtube and ran across a clip of Stan Laurel's funeral. Note the car that Dick van Dyke gets into at about 2:18 in the clip.

    The voice in the clip is Van Dyke, who gave the Eulogy at the funeral.

    No, but he did appear on THIS album cover: (next to last row between Paul and George)


    Oliver Hardy is there too - right next to good old Karl Marx.

    You can see who the rest are Here
